Landscape architects are disappointed when their projects suffer the effects of neglect or poor maintenance practices. More importantly, poorly tended high performance landscapes fail to deliver on their potential to treat stormwater, reduce sedimentation, filter nutrients, or provide pollinator habitat. After 16 years in private practice, Cheryl Corson had an opportunity to work on this issue. The Sustainable Landscape Maintenance Manual for the Chesapeake Bay Watershed is the result.
Building on the manual’s success, Cheryl now offers classes and workshops on using it to draft sustainable landscape maintenance plans for your own project, firm, or public agency.
